Citation Guides: AMA Citation Style (American Medical Association Manual of Style)

This guide includes information on all citation guides including MLA, APA, etc.

What is AMA?

The American Medical Association (AMA) style of documentation is used for the purpose of writing medical research. References are found at the end of a manuscript and are titled “Reference List”, and each item should be listed in numerical order (two references should not be combined under a single reference number) as opposed to alphabetically. Additionally, each item should be single-spaced.

This guide is based on American Medical Association (AMA) Style,  (10th ed.).
